The Last Night of the Caledonia Club – 1952 New Orleans Experience

For our blank space converted warehouse, The Pickle Factory, Shoreditch, we wanted to take advantage of the corporate business during the Holiday season and create an immersive experience that our clients could buy in to for their annual celebrations. We decided on creating a 1950s New Orleans Jazz Club but this was not an undertaking we could handle on our own. We hired Queen Mab to produce the event from start to finish, and they flawlessly created a world for us that embodied everything from the food, drinks, smells, sounds, feels, etc of old school New Orleans.

The event was called “The Closing Night at the Caledonia Club” and all staff, were fully in character, serving guests, dancing, performing, dressed to the part, all in costume and with the appropriate N’Orleans accent. Our white walled venue was transformed into a smokey, lavish speakeasy. The event was more than ourselves and our customers could have ever imagined or asked for thanks to Queen Mab’s work. Queen Mab were such a creative, professional, and genuine team to work with, and all of our clients left raving about what a “one of a kind experience” we had created for them.
